Was filmed April-June 2008 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and was set to be theatrically released in early 2009, but due to the financial troubles of the Weinstein Company, it saw a straight-to-DVD release on February 9, 2010. See more »
During the first few plays of the State Championship, one of the Patriots passes is stolen and taken down the court. The player with the ball then lobs the ball to a player wearing a #22 jersey, who then dunks it. When the camera zooms in on the player the jersey number has changed to #21. See more »
This is a wonderful movie. Too bad that it was not managed properly. The story needed to be told and will be one of the greats as far as I am concerned. The acting is superb, it brings the devastation of Katrina into each American home like no news reports could. It is an injustice to consider this movie just another "out of the ashes" "feel good" story. During the time of Katrina I could not help but wonder why we Americans had allowed the Patriot Act and Homeland Security to start taking over our lives, when mother nature is a much more formidable force than any terrorist acts. This movie made me think about how great people are when they have the resolve to do the extraordinary because of rather than despite insurmountable odds.
